Presented by a Wine Tasting Ambassador in the elegant Pierneef à La Motte Restaurant, the delicately plated tasters still represent everyday flavours and tastes, aiming at guiding guide guests towards more reliable future food and wine selections.

The La Motte Wine & Food Tasting is presented on Fridays at 10:30

Cost: R325

Reservations are essential and have to be made online at least 24 hours in advance.
